From storms to droughts, wildfires to floods or accidents to epidemics, disasters occur nearly every day in the United States, and the frequency is increasing. How many people are hurt or even killed by such disasters depends on the severity of the event, but also on a health care system’s ability to respond to ensure the ill and injured are treated effectively and efficiently. This webinar will provide information about how to support, coordinate, and manage health care system emergency preparedness, including mitigation, response, and recovery for hazard emergencies and disasters.
